I know I have not posted to this blog for quite a while as I have been doing quite a bit of traveling. I am trying to catch up now and am noticing, as keeps happening when I think it is going to slow down, there are more and more really good websites available for teachers.
I was catching up with one of my favorite blogs, iLearn Teachnology this afternoon and have been playing with a suggested site for way too long. It is called Grammaropolis and is the cleverest way of teaching the parts of speech since Conjunction Junction from School House Rock. You must start off by watching the video and you will see what I mean. The site then allows you to use segments of it to teach each part of speech. There are additional videos, songs, and games to provide a good understanding of grammar. Maybe this will counteract some of the raps our kids are listening to and the lack of decent grammar in their text messages.
